I haven’t finished going through all the analysis yet, but I think this is a bad move…for Ryan. Not to the same extent as McCain with Palin, but Ryan may lose some credibility for throwing in with Romney, who he surely must realize has a poor shot of winning anyway. And he already has an important post for which he should be working to secure by keeping his Congressional seat. So again: why?
“It’s our job to know what we’re playing; it’s the audience’s job to feel what we’re playing. And if they have to know what you’re playing to appreciate it, you fail.”
“When they talked about Coltrane or they talked about Miles, they talked about how the music made them feel. They never once talked about a specific chord structure that they thought was great.”
I don’t have an innate talent but I’m interested in stuff. Lots of stuff.
